Henrike Iglesias is Under Pressure. In a brilliant, interactive gameshow, the collective devotes itself to the pressure to perform, which is omnipresent in our turbo-capitalist society. The performers compete against each other and the audience gets to decide who is "the best" Henrike. But the Henrikes will try to infiltrate the strict and violent categories of winners and losers, hot or not, photo or no photo; leading them ad absurdum - by failing, night after night, in front of a packed audience. Not only can the performance be experienced at Sophiensæle, but also on your screen at home. Scores may be given live or by remote access, at the touch of a button. So, it’s gonna be absurd, but fair. Tickets for the reservix live stream will be available soon via our webshop.

The pre-sale for the live show in Sophiensæle's Festsaal starts soon. If you prefer to see the show at home via livestream please click HERE.
